Halema‘uma‘u Lava Lake of Old...

Detailed Description

Looking southwest across the surface of Halema‘uma‘u lava lake on January 23, 1918. Jagged "crags" of stranded, solidified lava rise as much as 30 m (100 ft) above the surface of the lake. A natural levee separates the smooth surface of the active lava lake from overflows of pāhoehoe in foreground. Photo by Thomas A. Jaggar, Jr.
